Description of Incident:

Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives are releasing the name of the man who had a standoff with deputies following a bank robbery Dec. 13 in Dania Beach.

On Dec. 19, the Federal Bureau of Investigation filed a federal complaint against Brian Henderson, 49, charging him with bank robbery.

Last Friday, Henderson walked into the Chase bank at 300 E. Dania Beach Blvd. sometime after 11:30 a.m. demanding cash from the teller and announcing he had an explosive device. The bank employees complied with his demand. As Henderson exited the bank, he was met by BSO deputies responding to the scene. People inside the bank were evacuated through a rear door and the plaza was cleared.
Initially, Henderson complied with deputies commands, but later stopped complying and several deputies fired their weapons. The bank robber was struck but is alive. Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue was on scene but was unable to approach him due to the possible explosive device.

The BSO Bomb Squad utilized a robot to approach Henderson and communicate with him. They were also able to take an X-ray of the device, at which time two bomb technicians approached him and carefully cut the device off of his body. BSFR transported Henderson to Broward Health Medical Center where he remains hospitalized.

The Bomb Squad conducted a remote procedure to open the device and render it safe.

The device was turned over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s South Florida Violent Crime Task Force who is investigating the bank robbery.
